ABOUT Statutory Registers

Statutory books and records are documents maintained by a company in the form of books or e-form or in such other form as may be determined specifying the important aspects of the operations and structure of an organisation. The records are kept up to date and necessary adjustments are made to reflect any changes that have taken place within the company. As per law, company statutory records should be kept at its registered office and should be available for inspection by directors, members of the company and by other persons like government authorities and creditors of the company. Failure to keep accurate records is a statutory offence and can lead to penalties and have significant commercial implications.

Under the Companies Act, 1956, a company is required to maintain certain statutory registers and records. 

  • Register of Investments not held by company in its own name
